I Never Had A Choice

10-10-2017 05:23 PM by 85GoCards | 4 comments »

Long story short, I went to a retiring woodworker’s auction and bought about 1/3 of the wood. I actually had to rent a uhaul to get it all back home. I haven’t measured every individual piece, but the estimated totals are: 200 bf of 11.5”-12.5” rough sawn, air dried, straight walnut. 15 pcs at 10’ and 10 or so at 8’ 40 bf of prefinished 4.5” x 10’ cherry 40 bf mix of cherry and walnut 4”-6” wide 140 bf of QS white an...

Feelin' Groovy.....

10-10-2017 01:44 PM by handsawgeek | 3 comments »

This weekend, I picked up this old dado / grooving plane at a yard sale. I find it rather interesting in that it is equipped with an angled cutting iron approximately 5/8 inch wide. All of this type of tool I’ve ever seen have had a straight iron set at an angle.I suspect this could possibly be a home-made affair in which the owner substituted an iron from a ‘old lady’s tooth’ type of dado plane.If any of you vintage tool fans out there have encountered anything ...

Greene & Greene Gamble House Side Chair #2: Marc Adams School, Day 1

10-10-2017 01:20 AM by TungOil | 6 comments »

Today was day one of the six day Gamble House side chair class at the Marc Adams school of Woodworking in Indiana. After 10 hours driving from Eastern Pennsylvania, I was happy to get a good night rest last evening and get started on this chair. Marc has a very large school and there are at least four classes going on simultaneously. Our instructor, Bob Lang, was asked to fill in for George Knutson who was unable to teach the class as originally planned. Bob was able to get the original...

The Bird Garden 2.0 #2: Another bird house and a couple of feeders

10-09-2017 08:56 PM by FreddieMac | 0 comments »

I put together a couple new open face bird feeders. I decided to throw away the old closed bird feeder becuase we have not had many takers. Seems the birds disappear this time of year with so much food. Come winter, I hope these houses and feeders will give us a supply of small birds. I also build another small house that is brown and green. I have not had many birds feeding yet, but I guess it may be due to the paint smells. I figure after a few weeks of airing out, I should ge...

Carving Mother Mary #3: Hand Carving a Female Face

10-09-2017 01:50 PM by Dennis Zongker | 17 comments »

It’s kind of amazing with all the small differences between a mans face compared to the female face. Carving Mary’s face was really fun for me, it took about three weeks. The customer wanted her to look young around 15 years old with a peaceful, praying look. To match up to the clay model I made several months ago was quite changeling from half scale to full scale, onto wood. Here are a few pictures showing some steps, Thank you for looking!!! ...

New router bench

10-09-2017 01:34 PM by FreddieMac | 0 comments »

As I was working this weekend, I decided I needed to finally do something about my router bench. It has been siting on the floor for some time unused, but, not any more. I toyed with a few ideas. I have a SKIL router bench that I purchased to make some L trims for a cabinet I was building for my kids bathroom after the flood. I had an old Ryobi router bench that I used a lot. My shop is pretty small and big table top tool can take up a lot of space. I am looking around wondering what I...

So, let’s start.First of all, user can choose out of 3 languages to use web site – English, Ukrainian and Russian. At the top of a page there is menu, that allows user navigate through a website.

Mitre Saw Dust Collection

10-08-2017 04:16 PM by Manitario | 7 comments »

Quick video of my simple MS dust collection. The constant cough that I had after making a lot of cuts on the MS was what drove me to get a DC in the first place. After experimenting with a variety of hoods and DC setups and I found that the hood design doesn’t really matter too much if you have a powerful DC. As you can see in the video, the particle count only increases from 190 to 520 after a series of cuts. Still need to make a few adjustments to the design (want to improve the colle...
